Drip, drop, drip, drop. The steady rhythm of rain became faster and faster and I started to panic. It was the morning of Diana and Zack’s wedding and rain was pouring down. Diana had planned a beautiful wedding ceremony on the U.S.S. Battleship in Wilmington, North Carolina but with so much rain the wedding they had dreamed of for months seemed almost impossible.
Just as I arrived at their hotel room I looked out the window and suddenly the rain disappeared. Just like that, their dream wedding was back on schedule as if it had never rained at all.
Diana’s Vera Wang’s shoes were perfect ans sparkly!
Diana loved her dress and I quickly fell in love with it too:
How cute is this? Diana sewed Zack’s name into her dress. So special:
Her dress was full of so many beautiful details:
Touching up her makeup one last time:
Putting on her wedding shoes:
Diana and Zack exchanged letters and gifts before the ceremony. Such a sweet moment. I might have cried a little too.
Arriving at the Battleship:
You can tell that Zack is just SO excited to finally see his bride for the first time:
A fun surprise Diana planned for Zack:
Diana originally promised her father that she would wait a few years to get married but then Zack came along.. Good thing Dad approves! His smile says it all.
She loves him. :)
First kiss as Mr. and Mrs.!
And the ladies:
Diana, you are STUNNING.
So in love:
After the ceremony we headed to the River Room for a beautiful reception:
Their first dance:
Ran outside to catch the sunset and this happened (that’s the Battleship in the background!):
Some rock candy ;)
A perfect ending to a perfect day:
Diana and Zack, thank you for inviting me to capture such a beautiful day! I am so glad the sun came out and made your day absolutely perfect. You both deserve it. Love you both!
